Product description

Amazon.co.uk

If the Brett Anderson of today has one main problem, it's that he's not the Brett Anderson of yesterday. The 25 year old Brett Anderson for instance was impossible to ignore for his fiery androgyny, confrontational lyricism and devil may care detachment. That Brett Anderson was also affiliated to virtuoso guitarist Bernard Butler, cementing one of indie's great partnerships, responsible even, some might say, for Britpop itself. And that's where his points of reference stop for many -- testament to the infamy of Suede's debut but not saying an awful lot for the relatively consistent body of work he has amassed since then. Even his and Butler's rewarding 2004 reformation as The Tears didn't capture imaginations. Without factoring in serious drug addiction and his fall from favour you'd expect bitterness then. And Brett Anderson the debut solo album is not short on that. He is bitter about love, he is bitter about addiction, he is bitter about the passé materialism of the world around him. The music is fairly standard without a collaborator to rely on, notwithstanding some lovely string-laden textures throughout, but the lyrical content and particularly its delivery stands firm. He still sounds like a rain lashed Bowie with a broken heart doing Morrissey, nasally, and that is enough to carry songs like "Love Is Dead", "Song For My Father" and the bold "The More We Possess The Less We Own Of Ourselves" through with a character that remains his own, regardless of age. --James Berry

BBC Review

With British popular culture currently taking the world by storm again, it seems only natural that one of the pioneers from blighty's last major musical movement should be present. However, this time he comes alone. Brett Anderson, sans Suede or The Tears (currently residing in the 'where are they now?' file), finally answers speculation with this his debut as a solo artist and songwriter. This self-titled album is not necessarily what you would expect of him, though.

Brett Anderson radiates maturity and self-confidence. Maybe demons have been exorcised or maybe he's grown wiser with age. Without bandmates or Bernard Butler the glam and avant-garde have gone, eclipsed by string arrangements and ceremonious harmonies. The first single and album opener ''Love is Dead'' gives a melancholic and honest introduction for what's to come. ''Dust and Rain'' is guitar-driven with a clever-clever hook 'I am the dust/ you are the rain/ I am the needle/ you are the vain'. It brings an edge that is sometimes missed in the rest of the album. It'll be a killer performed live.

But it's the emotional stuff that really hits home here. Songs like ''Infinite Kiss'' reach inside and haunt the listener. And if you want depth there's the waltzy ''The More We Possess The Less We Own Of Ourselves'', a poignant piece of social commentary expressed through the story of Peggy and her material life. This is above all, impressive songcraft and will silence any nay sayers who doubt Anderson's solo abilities.

So personal troubles may have been replaced with reflection but this signals an evolution in Brett Anderson!deliberate or natural. It may be too doleful for some, missing his former edge, and energy and some fans may be alienated by the change in direction. But for most, such an epic sounding album will bring sighs of relief. The man's not giving up quite yet! --Niko Michault
